Books- The Great Gatsby, Steppenwolf, Macbeth, and anything by Kurt
Vonnegut take up the top slots, but there's also a bunch of
turn-of-the-century English authors no one knows. I'm back up to
one book a month, which means that I'll have churned through my
current backlog of books I want to read sometime around
Shows- Documentaries, Top Gear, the new Doctor Who series (even
though I'm dreadfully behind at the moment and I want to watch the
Classic ones), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and The Wire. I
haven't had cable for three years now.
Movies- Wag the Dog, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Fighter, Die Welle
(The Wave), Bronson, Bloody Sunday, M, Taxi Driver, Dr. Strangelove
and most other Kubrick films, and a lot of recent releases. I'd
really like to get into more foreign films, specifically Iranian.
I've always loved b-movies
for some indiscernible
Music- bits and pieces of different genres. At the moment, I'm
between Social Distortion and generic 90s pop-rock like Third Eye
Blind. I also listen to a bunch of NPR.
Food- I try to eat more vegetables than I do meat. I eat spinach
like I'm a vegetable farm lobbyist. I cook a lot on my own, mostly
from cookbooks, but sometimes from bits and pieces of recipes
scrounged from other places. I love the Asiatown area, and miss
working closer to it.
As far as beer and wine goes, I know I like reds, but know very
little about them. I could be considered a beer snob, but I've got
a soft spot for Black Label.
